Does a Brow Lift Change Your Eye Shape?
A brow list is designed to create a more youthful and rejuvenated look to your face. Frown lines, wrinkles and sagging skin can cause your face to look older than it is, or even result in a grouchy or unhappy look--even if you’re perfectly fine on the inside. A brow lift procedure can enhance the overall look of your face, but it isn’t designed to change the shape of your eyes. However, a brow lift will improve the natural arch of your eyebrows, giving you a more refined and elegant look.
What does a brow lift do?
A brow lift addresses sagging, heavy brows and wrinkles that cause you to look tired or older, and can convey negative emotions such as grumpiness, unfriendliness or anxiety when they aren’t the feelings you want to intend. A brow lift is a shorter procedure than a full facelift, but gives profound improvement to the overall appearance and aesthetics of your face, allowing you to look refreshed, younger-looking and more authentically “you.”
A brow lift surgery takes one hour and is done under anesthesia. Incisions are made within the hairline. Once these incisions are made, your surgeon will use these incisions as entrance points from which to tighten the skin and muscles on your forehead. The procedure will smooth your brow and raise the skin gently, resulting in a natural-looking and rejuvenated forehead and eye area.
After your brow lift procedure, it will take about five days to fully recover and be able to return to all of your usual activities. Once this recovery time is complete, you can enjoy a renewed self-confidence and restored control over your natural expressions--and a firmer, younger brow.

Will a brow lift have any effect on my eyes at all?
Depending on what type of brow lift is done, a brow lift might cause a slight change or improvement in the appearance of your eyes. However, the change is not significant enough to consider a brow lift as a way to change the shape of your eyes on its own.
If you want to change the shape of your eyes in a more dramatic way, you might consider eyelid surgery. This procedure, often combined with a brow lift, can help you achieve larger, wider eyes, or change the shape of your eyes to have a more almond-shaped appearance.
